Belfast hospital doctor: 'Every baby swabbed' for infection
A third baby has died at the Royal Maternity Hospital in Belfast after an outbreak of an infection called Pseudomonas.
The first child died on 6 January, the second on 13 January - both from the infection. The third infant died on Thursday night.
A consultant at the hospital, Dr Clifford Mayes, has said all the babies in the neonatal unit have been swabbed for the infection.
He added that the remaining babies will be moved soon, so the unit can undergo a deep-clean.
